Created January 06, 2024 by Stacy Mozer

New England

While being a first-time picture book author is not novel, it is a dream-come-true for this mother and physician. Author Christine J. Ko will talk about her inspiration, touch on medical culture and the need for books to represent the diversity of the world, and her specific 5-year journey from conception to publication. She will cover the many rejections, finding a literary agent, getting a book contract, and the editing process. She will also discuss marketing and book launching. Join Christine on Wednesday, January 10, from 5 - 6 pm ET to hear her journey. Cost is $10 for premium members. Recording will be available to registered participants for a month after the event.
